Make It Stand: Balancing Shapes for 3D Fabrication

This paper demonstrates physically realization of 3D models under challenging stability conditions. Given a 3D mesh representing a solid object, the technique optimizes for equilibrium while standing or suspended at a given orientation. The algorithm exploits two main degrees of freedom to carve and deform the object to reach equilibrium.

Computational Design of Actuated Deformable Characters

A method for fabrication-oriented design of actuated deformable characters. Given a character in its neutral poses as well as a set of deformed target poses, the method automatically computes actuation forces and material properties that lead to an optimal approximation of the target shapes.

Interactive Authoring of Simulation-Ready Plants

A system for converting botanical triangle meshes into a format suitable for simulations using domain decomposition and model reduction. The method scales to complex realistic geometry of adult trees. A simulator supports large-deformation dynamics, fracture with pre-specified patterns, and inverse kinematics for plant posing.

Parsing Sewing Patterns Into 3D Garments

Techniques for automatically parsing existing sewing patterns and converting them in 3D garment models, and two applications that take advantage of the collection of parsed sewing patterns and allow users to explore the space of garment designs.
